Activ Fuse (US) Your solution for ankle arthrodesis
Our philosophy : 360° ankle arthrodesis
Reduced anterior approach
The range of anterior approach ankle arthrodesis plates offers two types of designs depending on the anatomical differences of the neck of the talus.
Each of the anterior plates have two trans-articular screws that allow performing a TT or TTC arthrodesis. These two trans-articular screws go through the plate and compress the fusion site, which makes the assembly rigid (compared to a competitor standard assembly without intra-plate transarticular screw).
An anterior narrow plate was developed for a reduced approach. Its locking ramp oblong hole allows compressing the arthrodesis site up to 2.5mm using the screw/plate interface. This plate is always used in an assembly with two cross screws going through the joint.
Refer to the auto-compression screws of the Footmotion Large Screws (Ø6.0mm, Ø8.0mm) range and to the compression screws of the Activ Screw (Ø6.5mm) range for further information.
The range of anterolateral approach ankle arthrodesis plates was designed to preserve the fibula, whenever possible. Two sizes available
Each of the anterolateral plates have two transarticular screws that allow carrying out a TT or TTC arthrodesis. These two transarticular screws that go through the plate compress the fusion site.
+ Optional extension plate offer a lateral support to the anterolateral approach. It use allows making the site of the TTC arthrodesis rigid when the primary stability is considered to be insufficient by the surgeon.
The range of posterior approach ankle arthrodesis plates was designed to adjust to the anatomical differences in the posterior malleolus. A standard plate and straight plate allow performing a TTC arthrodesis while a plate with three locked holes in the talus allows performing a TT arthrodesis.
Each of the posterior plates have one transarticular screws that allow performing a TT or TTC arthrodesis. This transarticular screw that goes through the plate compresses the fusion site.
